In a study by Epler et aI, patients with significant interstitial disease often had no rales. 4 Finger clubbing is nonspecific for asbestosis, it is not a universal finding in patients with asbestosis,S and its presence does not parallel the radiographic seve~ity of asbestosis. 6 Routine laboratory data are nonspecific, including high titers of antinuclear antibody or rheumatoid factor.
10 • 11 When an asbestos-exposed population is compared with a nonexposed population, and the factor of cigarette smoking is controlled, there is no evidence that asbestos-exposed populations have excess airway obstruction. '3 Further, in recent sheep experiments the peribronchial mononuclear alveolitis resulting from inhalation of asbestos fibers caused compression of small peripheral airways. 14 Such small airway disease has been described in other interstitial lung disease. 15- 17 However, flow is determined by both airway geometry and elastic recoil of the lungs; asbestos is associated with noncompliant or stiff lungs with increased elastic recoil, as is the case for any infiltrative lung disease.
21 In serial studies of pulmonary function among patients with asbestosis, the fall in the DLco often preceded any significant decline in the vital capacity. I It should be emphasized that studies of pulmonary function may be only slightly abnormal, if at all, despite significant asbestosis. 21 Just as patients early in their course complain of dyspnea only witn exercise, pulmonary function may be abnormal only after exercise. The abnormalities on exercise testing in interstitial lung disease include an abnormal pattern of ventilation and abnormal gas exchange.
